LoveReading View on History of Warts: Ditherus Wart: (accidental) Gladiator

A very funny new series from the creator of Trolls, it’s a brilliant mix of Horrible Histories and Blackadder.  Fast-moving, side-splittingly funny, irreverent adventure stories are played out against the backdrop of great and gruesome history through one family tree, the disastrously unlucky Warts, through the centuries as they attempt to survive whatever is thrown at them.  As Ditherus Wart is selected to join Gladiator school he must hatch a cunning plan or death will almost certainly arrive. Be sure to check out the other book in the History of Warts series Custardly Wart: Pirate (third class).

History of Warts: Ditherus Wart: (accidental) Gladiator Synopsis

Ditherus is tempted into buying a sword from a mysterious peddler. Searched by centurion Marcus Furius when he gets home, Ditherus is thrown into prison when the sword is discovered and sentenced to death as a traitorous thief. Ditherus and his servant are taken to Gladiator School where the motto is 'Death or Glory - but most likely Death'.
